Loving Jung Eun Ji is like appreciating an organic chocolate chip cookie – all natural tasty wholesome goodness. It’s hard to find an idol who is good at the singing and acting in equal measure, though not yet outstanding in either pursuit but good is hard enough to come by I’ll take it as is with her. KBS has been readying a school drama to take over the Mon-Tues slot from Eccentric Daughter-in-law (The Virtual Bride), clearly noticing Who Are You: School 2015 got a lot of buzz earlier this year, and rival network MBC also scored major points with Angry Mom. Initially the drama was titled Cheer Up and was courting child actress turned beautifyl teenager in 16 year old Kim Yoo Jung, but today news broke that Kim Yoo Jung has passed on the project and KBS is in talks with Jung Eun Ji for the lead role. I was sad for a millisecond upon hearing the one-two news of Kim Yoo Jung passing but Jung Eun Ji potentially headlining the drama.
Jung Eun Ji’s last drama also aired on KBS, the hot mess that was Trot Lovers (Lovers in Music). I don’t think the drama was abysmal, but it definitely never lived up to expectations the entire way through. The new drama has gotten a name change from Cheer Up to Rude Go Go, or something like that. I’ll wait to see what title the network settles on but for now things are looking up that Eun Ji is considering the role for her drama return.
